This case involves a pop singer who made a pop song with the same name as a copyrighted soul song from the 1960’s. The original song was made by a famous group that had many R&B and soul hits from that era. The original song was not released on an album and was only released as a 45-record single. The song was not a commercial success. The pop singer was famous for doing songs that revived the soul sound from the 1960’s and did a number of cover songs of 1960’s hits that were very popular. The singer and a friend co-wrote a song with the same name as the original song and it became a very successful hit on the pop music charts. When they were writing the song, the pop singer remarked to his friend that he wondered if there was another 1960’s soul singer who had written a song with a similar name and also commented that he thought they might be copying that song. The song had several elements that were similar to the 1960’s song, including musical pitch, lyrics, and instrumentation. The singer had grown up listening to and singing the songs of the soul group and had been a collector of their music as a young person. The soul group brought suit against the singer for copyright infringement. Experts in the music industry, audio engineering, and copyright infringement were retained to opine on the issue.
